The Crowstarver

Publisher: Random House

Review

Set in pre-World War II Britain, this is the poignant tale of an abandoned baby, adopted by a childless farming couple. As ‘Spider’ grows up, it becomes apparent that despite his physical and learning disabilities, he has a remarkable gift for communicating with animals.

Written with sensitivity and tenderness, this is a thought-provoking read.
